I have the great firtune of supporting a multi-tenant, multi data center, environment that currently consists of three management groups. In the past we had multihomed agents between management groups but that really just swelled up our ops manager database, as well as the data warehouse. So we’ve since removed that configuration and now every agent reports to it’s in management group. Oh, the console sprawl.
We’ve been entertaining the idea of sharing data warehouses between management groups for a long time, to make reporting a lot more simpler. We’re considering sharing DWs between two of our larger data centers and leaving the smaller one stand alone, for the time being (it may be headed for OMS).
Would love to hear examples of how anyone else is overcoming this.
One of our constraints at this point is network segregation due to ridiculous paranoia and unicorns. The combination of those has also lead us to make, what I think was a mistake, of using different SDK and data access accounts between these management groups; same domain though!
Horror stories and tales of truimph also welcome.
